Talkietoaster has made some interesting contributions
Bush on human rights in China

On cnn: "U.S. President George W. Bush expressed "deep concerns" over religious freedom and human rights in China"

With Guantanamo in mind, who is bush to critizise other countries on their human rights track record .

(another done-to-death topic I guess )

Re: Bush on human rights in China

No, your contribution is appreciated Mr. Talkietoaster. Clearly there has been a lack of enthusiasm for other polemical topics such as evolution vs. ID, smoke ban in bars, bush impeachment etc. We need a debate people can really get passionate about.

Maybe he (Bush) feels that he has something to offer China in the way of Democracy TM.

Re: Bush on human rights in China


"Four young men and women had their lives taken from them while lawfully protesting this outrageous government action. We are going back to keep awareness alive in the minds of all students, not only in America, but worldwide…to be vigilant and ready to stand and be counted… and to make sure that the powers of the politicians do not take precedent over the right of lawful protest."
(Graham Nash, 1970)

Out'n'over

Re: Bush on human rights in China

Bush doesn't care about human rights. It's all political talk.

He didn't mention the CIA interference in Tibet though.
